Past and upcoming talks or workshops on UX in various settings
This talk was given for MK Geek Night, a quarterly conference in Milton Keynes. It is about user experience in the development world and beyond. It will give a brief intro to UX, talk about its importance through development and how to use it to improve your code, development processes and ultimately, your life..
I worked with the Open University's Students' Association to help their student
representatives get more out of social media. Being that the OU is a distance learning university
it is key that social media is used to make the students still feel part of a university.
The workshop consisted of firstly drawing out user personas and then designing a social media page specifically for the user they had created. These were all then shared and discussed with each table.
This got the student representatives thinking about appropriate posts and how to cater for different types of students, enabling them all to contribute to each student's experience.
